I think if they are not more cunning in other things than in this guess, on en aura bon marche. Is it not laughable ? Truguet's answer to my application for an audience came to me enclosed in a bit of brown paper. He appointed me to be with him at three o'clock to-day.1 I was introduced to him by M. Coltrone, chef de la troisieme division. He is a smart young beau, very polite and chatty; but upon my bringing Sir Sidney Smith upon the tapis, he bounced up in a violent passion, said he had not understood that I was to have any- thing to say in that business and expressed an idea that it could not be settled till the cartel was fixed.

Frangois Truguet, born at Toulon, created Count in 1814, Peer in 1819, and Admiral (equivalent to Marshal) in 1831. He commenced his career in the navy as midshipman, in 1765, and still lives.
